An auto accident earlier this week claimed the life of a man from Hanover, Maryland. The 66-year-old man was walking in the right lane of eastbound Dorsey Road in Hanover when he was hit by a car driven by a 26-year-old man from Harmans, Maryland. The pedestrian was transported to Maryland's Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, where he was pronounced dead.
While the sight of a teenager or young adult walking around listening to music on their headphones is pretty much commonplace these days, the practice is not completely innocuous. Anyone who has gotten caught up in listening to music while walking around has probably come close to inadvertently walking into disaster without realizing it.
While every prospective parent in Maryland wants a healthy baby, sometimes injuries and accidents can occur at the time of delivery.

One recent motor vehicle accident in Prince George's County appears to be something more sinister--a deliberate act. According to a local news report, the driver of a school bus purposely crashed the bus into a building at her workplace. Three people were injured in the motor vehicle crash, although all were reportedly in good condition. The woman had reportedly been working as a bus driver since 1998 with no history of problems at work. However, recently she was involved in an ongoing altercation with a coworker, whom she accused of harassment. She even went to court to stop the alleged harassment, but a judge dismissed her case.
